Sixth Annual DVDTalk Bragging Rights Bowl Pickem Championship

It is that time of the year again. The first bowl game is only a few days away it is time to lay your ego on the line and make some picks. Before we begin, lets pay tribute to our past winners:

Fifth annual challenge won by Daryl
Fourth annual challenge won by Byron_T in a tiebreaker
Third annual challenge won by clemente in a tiebreaker
Second annual event won by Supr_65
Inaugural challenge won by brizz



The winner of this challenge will receive bragging rights for the year and a place in DVDTalk Sports Forum history. Feel free to make side bets for signatures and what not. Whether you stick to them is up to you .

This year, instead of all the tedious posts and manual calculations and updates that have happened in the past, I've setup a group at Yahoo! to allow for easy selection and tracking of the picks. I think it is best to keep it as close to the old contest as possible to keep the historical stats meaningful. For that reason, the confidence factor that you can assign will only be used as the third tiebreaker if necessary.

Signup Here
The group ID# is 22458 and the password is: twikoff

The rules are as follows:
1) You must enter all of your picks before the first game (Dec 20, Poinsettia Bowl).
2) The winner will be the person with the most number of games correctly picked
3) If there is a tie, picking the winner of the national championship game (LSU/Ohio State) will be used as the first tie breaker
4) The second tie breaker will be the score of the national championship game. The closest score, either over or under the actual score will be declared the winner.
5) The third tiebreaker will be the highest score with the confidence values

Post in this thread with your team name, so I can associate your team to your username when updating historical stats.

Nope, I didn't count him intentionally because it's probable he's not going to play this year, being off the forums and all.
